We understand that a busy lifestyle can make time pass quickly. Before you know it, your smile will be due for another professional cleaning and exam. Skipping a cleaning and exam may become costly in numerous ways. We recommend scheduling your next appointment prior to leaving our dental office in Wilmington, MA to help prevent missing an important cleaning.
Regular dental exams help prevent oral diseases (such as decay and periodontal disease) from developing. Your regular exam allows our professional dental team to find early signs of mineralized plaque (tartar), which can cause extreme damage to teeth and gums. Other dental conditions such as a loose filling, dry mouth, and impacted wisdom teeth may also be detected and treated by the Wilmington dentist to prevent worsening problems.
When dental problems are detected in earlier stages, the less costly and invasive the treatment will be. During your regular check up, our doctor will screen your smile for early signs of gum disease, decay, and oral cancer.
In the early stages of gum disease, a non-surgical deep cleaning is able to treat mild to moderate conditions. However, intense cases of gum disease can require gum surgery. Cavities also benefit from early detection. Cavities can infect and damage the pulp of the tooth. Pulp infections require root canal therapy. When a cavity is left untreated for a longer period time, the affected tooth can become severely damaged and require an extraction. Regular dental exams with the dentist in Wilmington, can prevent costly treatments such as extractions and root canals.
